28. I’m Left On Feet! (Upper Intermediate)

LearnItalianPod Learn Italian with LearnItalianPod. Episode #28 of the “Upper-Intermediate Level Series” is entitled “I’m Left On Feet!”. Does it sound like nonsense? Well, let’s explain! – Italians use the famous expression “rimanere a piedi”, which in English can be translated as “to be left on feet”, to say that their car broke down and therefore they can only… walk!

So today, let’s follow our friend Lucia as she calls ACI, the Italian roadside assistance, after her car suddenly stopped working, and let’s learn a lot of useful Italian that everyone can use in the unfortunate case of a car breakdown while in Italy. Enjoy!

  1. I still laugh when I remember the first time I heard the expression “sono rimasta a piedi” from my Italian friend Laura – this episode brought back many good memories… grazie mille!

  2. I actually had the experience of having to call ACI while in Italy – everything went smoothly, the people from ACI were very helpful.
